5 Ways to Stay on Track 4th of July Weekend

cellulite reductionIndependence Day weekend is here! For many, this means a long weekend filled with activities and get-togethers—and with that comes a lot of potential temptation. When you’re out all day at BBQs and special events, it’s hard to pass up that hot dog or hamburger or those cookies staring at you. Yet when you spend so much time and effort dieting, exercising, dry brushing and doing your No Lipo Lipo routine, the last thing you want to do is sabotage all your hard work.

The good news is, we’ve got some tips to help you enjoy your weekend without sacrificing your waistline.

1. Hydrate properly. Make sure to drink plenty of water, preferably with lemon, to maintain hydration all day long. It will help your skin look better and ensure that you don’t mistake thirst for hunger, which is extremely easy to do. It will also help you fill up before eating so that you don’t overeat.

2. Stay on regimen. Just because it’s a holiday, don’t skip your daily dry brushing and No Lipo Lipo regimens. They will help give your skin that healthy glow for any events you have planned and help flush the toxins from your body. It’s more important on weekends like these to stay on track with these body sculpting activities.

3. Get physical. Do what you can to stay on track in this department as well—if you can squeeze your normal workout or exercise class in, do so. Try and get it in first thing in the morning so that your metabolism is revved for the day. If you can’t follow your normal routine, go for a walk, swim or run to make up for some of the extra calories you may consume this holiday weekend.

4. Don’t go anywhere hungry. The worst thing you can do is skip meals and head out on an empty stomach—you will be sure to overeat. Instead, eat a healthy, protein-rich breakfast and have healthy snacks throughout the day to avoid those hunger pangs.

5. Load up on lean protein. Lean protein helps fill you up and promotes healthy digestion. Head to the grill for salmon, chicken, seafood or a grass-fed hamburger instead of an unhealthy, fat-laden options.

Top 5 Summer Skin Care Tips

facial exercisesThe sun is out and the heat is on—while summer is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors, it’s even more important to stay on top of your skin care regimen, in addition to your facial exercises. Our skin is at greater risk due to increased exposure to heat and the sun’s damaging rays. Read on for five tips to help your skin stay its beautiful best this time of year and beyond.

1. Wear sunglasses every day. Squinting is not attractive, and worse yet, it leads to deep wrinkles around the eyes and between the brows. Find sunglasses that block 100 percent of harmful UV rays and provide polarized lens to cut the glare caused by the brightness of these long summer days.

2. Avoid simple carbs. If you want to stay swimsuit-ready and keep your skin healthy, avoid starchy and sugar-laden foods as much as possible. This will help prevent wrinkles and slow down the aging process.

3. Wear sunscreen daily and wash it off when you get inside. At a minimum, apply sunscreen to your face, hands, neck and décolletage every single day. For best results, apply it all over your body. If you plan to engage in outdoor activities, make sure to re-apply sunscreen often. Once you go home, cleanse your face thoroughly to avoid clogged pores and breakouts.

4. Eat an anti-inflammatory diet. If you eat a diet rich in lean protein, fiber and produce that’s packed with antioxidants, you’ll reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and puffiness. Be sure to load up on vitamin C, which is an antioxidant powerhouse.

5. Drink green tea. The Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) in green tea has antioxidant benefits that have been shown to help protect skin from harmful UV rays and boost the metabolism.

Do your facial exercises daily. You knew I had to touch on this! Your facial exercises should be performed twice a day to combat the signs of aging and even undo some of the past damage. If time is scarce, try the 8-minute supersets available on the Ultimate Facercise DVD.
